We have published a new webpage, Scotland: fee status for students starting from August 2021.
The page provides explanations of the amended fees regulations, and relevant guidance, which underpin fee status assessment in Scotland for those students commencing study on or after 1 August 2021.
The new page represents our current interpretation of the regulations and guidance but please keep an eye on it over the coming days and weeks - we will be adding to it as we seek, and hopefully receive, further clarity from the Scottish Government on a few points (which we identify in the page).
We hope that the webpage proves useful to students and fee assessors. The changes to Scotland's fees regulations, for students starting courses in 2021, are long and complex. We appreciate your patience whilst we have worked through these changes in order to be able to explain the new situation. We will also now be working to update our public information on Government Student Support for Scotland, as well as making changes to our information for members in the UKCISA manual.
